You know how great inventions seem so simple once someone has invented it? Here is a perfect example: Most modern homes, or renovated older ones, end up with recessed can lighting all over the place. It's cheap, it does the job and it's inoffensive. But it also has no style and looks like you cheaped out on the decor, or couldn't make a decision. On top of that, while it's inexpensive to install, taking them out has always required an electrician, a plaster guy, and then repainting.
Now, if you've been following along, you'll know about saving money on your electric bill by replacing incandescent bulbs with CFLs and the new LED bulbs just hitting shelves. Today, I'm going to tell you how swapping your old lights for LED Christmas lights can save you money three ways.
